Description

Road diet, sometimes called a roadway reconfiguration, is a type of roadway project that can improve safety for all users by reducing crash severity, reducing vehicle speeds, shortening pedestrian crossing distances, and creating space for bikeways, among other benefits. Webinar panelists will share recent research about the operational effects of road diets, new guidelines for implementation, and case studies of recently completed projects.
